If you are like me (where your week starts on a Monday and ends on Sunday) today marks the end of the first full week of the new year. Today marks the end of a week’s worth of resolutions completed (or possibly not completed or even started). Typically I set New Year’s resolutions but I have decided that for the most part it is not worth it, I’ll keep it up for a good while and then drop it when I’m over it. Maybe it’s because I’m lazy, or easily bored, whatever the reason this year no resolutions were made. I did however decide that this year is the year that I do not want to waste a single day. I want to do what I want and be around the people I want to be around, this year I will follow my gut and do the things that I have wanted to do for so long. So maybe I actually did make a resolution but in the spirit of the way I am I’m being anti-resolution.
With that being said I would like to introduce you to my new planner (I get really excited about things to keep organized). This planner takes each week and breaks it down; what do you want to accomplish, what are you grateful for, quotes to stay on track, and reminders to keep your thoughts positive and other little things to keep your mindful of what you are trying to fulfill in your weekly life, as well as the bigger picture. This planner as they plainly put it on Amazon “other planners help you plan your day, we help you plan your life!” So with the help of this planner I will be planning the life that I want to have and the journey that this will take me on.
The quote for the end of December (which I did not participate in because I didn’t get the calendar until the middle of this week) was: Intend to be at your best this week. I am sure that they set that little staying on track quote up to be inline with the new year and the resolutions to be made but the way I see it just intend to do the best you can in all that you do because we all have a lot of stuff on our plates and sometimes life gets tough but as long as you keep a positive outlook and make the best of every situation (even the bad ones) everything works out in the end (maybe not immediately but it always ends the way it should, because like I always have to remind myself; things happen for a reason).
I would say that I resolve that I will blog more but I know how that will work out so I will just say I intend to do my best at blogging each week and I will remind myself that we make time for the things and people that we want to make time for, even the people who are the most busy make time for the things that they really want to even when they feel like they cannot possibly squeeze anymore into 24 hours.
